Institute for Applied Autonomy
USA, 2001
proof logo

Produced prior to September 11, this activist/artist website identifies the location of closed-circuit television cameras in New York's city streets, enabling citizens to travel the "paths of least surveillance".

The Institute for Applied Autonomy was founded in 1998 as an anonymous collective of engineers, designers, artists and activists united by the cause of individual and collective self-determination. The group's stated mission is to develop technologies that extend the autonomy of human activists in the performance of real-world, public acts of expression.

The diminishing accessibility of public spaces for free expression and the increased omnipresence of electronic surveillance has been a key motivation for IAA research.
